It's amazing how fluidly they climb.

(although it's good to see even the pros use a cheeky knee occasionally!)

In reply to Jack Geldard - UKC Chief Editor: remarkeable film for a 90s winter man.. fascinating stuff.. young Sim deserves more attention, very talented, can see why now why hes pasting all the cham test pieces

for all aspiring winter climbers, its all about the feet (as it has always been)

Great - One of the better videos ever on here - must try to move more like that myself.....!

Please could people stop using the word "pro" interchangably with "very good" - they are not the same thing; there are lots of very good climbers and very few "pro" ones!

In reply to Robert Durran: I'll just call them athletes Robert! :)

'Pro' and 'very good' are not mutually exclusive

In reply to UKC News: Why not come along to listen to Will Sim talk about some of his achievements and what makes him do the things he does well?
He'll be giving an 'illustrated lecture' in Cockermouth on Wed 15th February. See www.saintsrooms/willsim for details (or if that doesn't work please email me. Tickets can be bought at Needlesports in Keswick.
